White's Electronics,

I used to coach girls Little League softball. My daughter played on the team from when she was nine until she was fifteen. The first year I was coaching, one of the nine-year-old girls said to me, “Mr. C., I lost my Black Hills gold ring.” We were playing at one of the local schoolyards. Although I owned a metal detector, I didn’t have the time to look for it then, and later it slipped my mind.

Years passed and I began using my metal detector more often and would visit the local schoolyards and parks in the area. It was about 30 years later that I was using my XLT in that same schoolyard when I got a signal. I was in the same area where the girl told me she had lost her ring so long ago. When I got the signal, I dug down about two inches and found a nickel. But I always go over the same area two or three times, so when I tried again, I got another signal. And when I dug about 4 inches down, this time I found a Black Hills gold ring. And then it hit me that it was the ring the nine-year-old girl from our softball team had lost years ago!

So when I got home, I called the girl, who was now a young woman, and fortunately she still lived in the area. I brought the ring to her and after I gave it to her, she gave me a big hug. And then, even after all those years, when she put it on her finger, it still fit!
